Here is an alternative to shot/media loaded maces and solid fixed weight maces. This Plate Loadable Mace has the nice handle size of 1.5". Uses standard 1" plates. Easy weight change and plenty of loading area! Recommended 5 lb standard plates with smooth edges. Has a solid design where there is no extra loading shaft sticking out after plates are on. Another excellent benefit of the StrongerGrip PLM is the locking set screw to secure the shaft and stop the loosening of the plates while using. Empty weight of 12 lbs. You can load this up to any desired weight you can handle! Overall length 42". Added weight plates increase the length.
